We tried to reserve a room at Tamarindo inn, but were given a room at hostel Tamarindo (same owner?). Tamarindo hostel is clean, but that's about all the positive there is. There is no hostel wibe, no real common areas, you only get out when the staff opens the door (all staff only speak Spanish). The rooms are noicy and... More

Staff are very friendly and nice. Perfect location. Upon arrival the woman gave us a cute little set of juice, candy and crackers. When we saw that there was no AC - we were worried it would be too hot but it was perfect because the trees provide good shade. Bathrooms are shared.

Great location close to all the bars and restaurants and about 15 min walk to metro. Nice kitchen, good wifi and decent sized double room...although bed wasnt very comfortable. Staff only speak Spanish but theres lots of info written in English. Would stay again

The staff here didn't seem friendly or helpful at first yet warmed up after a few days. The location is good and dorm very inexpensive. I slept well in the third floor dorm with the windows open and loved the tree branches hanging nearby. There are no rugs or creature comforts in this sparsely "decorated" hostel but no one played...

The hostal is clean and the location is ideal for city trips and nightlife, there are supermarkets next to the hostal and many restaurants close by. However it can be noisy due to the busy road which is in front of the hostal. Overall great value for money

I think this is the worst hostel I have ever seen. Al the lights are switched off to save electricity, the commen room is just really sad and the staf has to onlook the door every time you want to go out. Don't waste your time here

I stayed here for almost a month as compared with the other options in the area for the same budget it was the best to me. It's in the very centre of the "Poblado" neighborhood, the most westernized and safe area - mostly populated by foreigners - with restaurants and night life. To go to the city old center, with...

Good hostel with relatively competitive prices in a popular area (Poblado) of medellin. Our room was very spacious with big sliding windows (although the double bed was a bit small), bathrooms, kitchen were clean & the ladies at check in seemed friendly..they were even happy to store our backpacks here the day before we actually checked in...only downside is no...

Cheap dorms for an expensive part of town. Clean simple hostel. Kind, helpful staff. Free coffee in the mornings and a decent kitchen open to use. Close to a bunch of bars and restaurants in a nice quiet neighborhood and a 15 min walk from the metro to get anywhere in the city. Small rooftop terrace (no views).

Overpriced: $50,000 for a room with no form of cooling, not even a fan. Service: Must be a foreign word, because they don't know about it. Noise: The walls are made from crepe paper. Breakfast: You certainly don't get that. .5/10 = Do not stay.
